That being said, everything went really well. I had a hard time deciding which event to post about first! Believe me, there will be a LOT of photos shared this week -- I hope you don't mind!
We had both sets of parents, Travis' brother and his grandmother to our house for brunch on Mother's Day. It's the first family holiday we've ever hosted at our place - so I really wanted to make it special.
Here are the placecards I made...
And here's the table. Being sick and busy I for sure didn't take as many or as great a photos as I would have liked to, but these should give you an idea at least. I sewed the tablecloth and the runner and napkins myself.
(We also had mimosas, bloody marys, and coffee to drink...)
We were running a little later than planned (don't family meals almost always run that way?!) but we finally sat down to eat...
Here are a few shots of the family. Top left is Travis and I with his mom and brother. Top right is the three of us kids with Grandma. Bottom left is Travis and I with my parents, and bottom right is a cute snapshot of my parents.
And finally... a shot of me and my Mum...
We had a lovely brunch. There were a couple of decorative things I just didn't end up doing (too sick, not enough time... you've got to know when to stop and put your sanity and health first, you know?) but I think everything still looked (and tasted!) nice.
I hope that all you Mum's and Mom's (ha!) had a lovely Mother's Day!
PS) In all the craziness of last week I forgot to mention that I have another article over at Babble. I hope you'll check it out!
PPS) Dot over at Dabbled re-featured my Flower Pinata from last year. In case you missed it, be sure to take a peek!
